New Term – CBISTO

THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2016

Pronounced “see bist oh”.

That heifer in literally every single sale that has some version of “can’t believe I’m selling this one” in her sale description.

Rather than trying to find a new way to say you’re crazy for selling that heifer, just write CBISTO.

Final 2016 Texas Cup Team Standings

MONDAY, JUNE 13, 2016

Congratulations to Wall FFA on an extremely impressive year with top ten finishes  Houston, San Antonio, and Tarleton (all of those contests have nearly 1,000 contestants just in the senior divisions) as well as winning the state FFA contest.

Texas Cup Top 25 Teams
  1. Wall FFA
  2. Needville FFA
  3. Hamilton FFA
  4. Coryell County
  5. Sealy FFA
  6. Fort Bend County
  7. Floresville FFA
  8. Stephenville FFA
  9. Bellville FFA
  10. Marion FFA
  11. Guadalupe County
  12. Angleton FFA
  13. Wylie FFA
  14. Caldwell County
  15. Perryton FFA
  16. Fredericksburg FFA
  17. North Zulch FFA
  18. Boling FFA

  20. Robertson County
  21. Dripping Springs FFA
  22. Rudder FFA
  23. East Central FFA
  24. Live Oak County

Some stats...

Over 450 4-H counties and FFA chapters had a top twenty finish in at least one contest.

There were 87 contests counted in this ranking.

There were 21,224 entries in just the senior divisions at those contests.

It's pretty darn impressive to see that the entire top ten finished in the top 20 at AT LEAST ten different contests.  Twenty years ago we had to beg our ag teacher to get to five.

No, it doesn't get old...

FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2016

You know that hair you're able to get on calf right there behind the shoulder at the front of the forerib?  It' always the nicest hair on an animal.  I'd be interested in hearing theories why that's the case.  Maybe it's because they don't lay down on it and when they do lay on their side, that minor indention right there helps prevent it from coming in contact with the ground.

How nice would it be if you could take that hair and just copy/paste it on the rest of a calf?

Well, have not fear, Photoshop and Mark Sneed are here to save the day.

This one appears to have had substance added to his middle by taking some of that sweet sweet hair and just copying it to his middle and the connection between his hindquarter and middle.


Those three red blobs are all just copies of the front one.

They get blurry on the back end because he did at least half ass an effort to blend the copy/paste/clonestamp in to the rest of the body on this calf.

Again, these pictures are not about the quality of the calf, they're about the character of the man.

Or lack thereof.

More bad Photoshop...

TUESDAY, JUNE 07, 2016

I'd assume he got busy and forgot to finish editing this one because what he did to the topline is so absolutely amateurish it's hard to believe a professional photographer would release this picture for public view.


Poorly done Photoshop of the day....

MONDAY, JUNE 06, 2016

If you people believe him when he tells you he's just covering up flies, you're idiots.

In my personal opinion, almost the entire top half of the middle third of this calf was heavily Photoshopped in an almost cartoonish manner.  However there's nothing to prove that beyond doubt.

The part highlighted here is the just the part where he got lazy and did too long a drag with the clone stamp tool, thus duplicating the same hair pattern.

We counted 56 steers that sold online for $10k or more this spring.  That's the lowest number since 2012 when there 20% less steers sold online than this spring.


The peak was 76 in 2015.

Percentage of steers sold online between January and May that sold for $10,000 or more...
